Founder's Day

Each year we celebrate our Founder’s Day on December 2nd to commemorate and recognize our rich history. As an institution older than Canada’s confederation, being a member of the Huron community means being a part of one of the oldest university communities in Canada. Huron predates the founding of Western University by 15 years and acted as a founding element of the larger institution. Huron College was incorporated on May 5, 1863 and officially opened its doors on December 2, 1863.
